  • We were surprised that Jackson had a museum this big and nice for such a small town. There's also a nice restaurant inside. It is great place to go, particularly if you need to escape the weather.  more »

  • If you love wildlife, or if you love art, you should go. If you love both, like me, you'll absolutely love it. The collection is beautiful and well presented. There's a stunning Rungius gallery, some Warhol pieces, and more. I love that one of the gallery is dedicated to raise awareness about the animal trade. The building and its location are well worth a stop even if you don't go in. Just go!
  • From Pablo Picasso to Charles Russell, if you enjoy wildlife art then you will be glad you paid this place a visit. Take a stroll outside overlooking the National Elk Refuge while you immerse yourself in life-size sculptures or walk the halls to view amazing works like "Chief" by Robert Bateman.
  • Absolutely outstanding! I could spend three days here. Painting, drawing, sculpture from abstract to realism. The Andy Warhol exhibit had more depth than I expected. Lovely lunch at the restaurant, Palate.
  • Beautiful art but very stingy people.. they wouldn't even let us carry our diaper bag around in the bottom of the stroller .. not touching any statues either.. even if they are metal..
  • A gem. Fantastic works of art on international level. Beautiful setting. Interesting architecture and sculpture garden. Worth spending several good hours.
